Just got back from my hen do in Portugal and Nuno was an incredible tour guide for us for the... Saturday. Not only did he make the stand up paddleboarding and paddle board yoga really enjoyable, he was just an absolute delight. He greeted us with pastel de natas in the morning and was very attentive to everyone in the group - keeping everyone smiling the whole day. He was even helpful recommending places to visit over WhatsApp before we even got to Portugal! 100% recommend. thanks for making my hen extra special 😊 obrigada!read more

Why We Love This…

“Our other outdoor activity options are perfect for adding to our best selling watersports & adventures in Portugal, a favourite of mine being a tuk tuk tour or sunset sailing trip. But, they are also awesome fun on their own. Some days you may just want to mix things up and these outdoor activities show another great side to amazing Portugal.”
